New here and looking for volunteers. I'm looking for people to sew really simple, tiny catnip pillows for the rescue group that I work for. The pillows are generally 2" X 2" and stuffed with batting, some catnip and a bell (if possible). I've been buying remnants from fabric stores for very cheap (sometimes only 10 cents) and I make as many pillows as I can. My group sells them at a farmer's market in Illinois for $1 each and all money goes to www.helpinganimals.org.
You would have to cover the cost of the materials (very minimal if you are frugal and willing to look for bargains) and I'll supply the FedEx account to get them to us in Illinois. Each pillow takes about 2 mintues to make (with a sewing machine; of course).
A little about the group:
We are an ALL VOLUNTEER organization; we have NO PAID EMPLOYEES
We rescue cats that are stray or are in danger of becoming stray; we do not take people's pet's to rehome.
We rescue dogs from local shelters that are scheduled for Euthanization (there aren't many stray dogs in our area).
We are an ALL FOSTER HOME group which means that we DO NOT have a shelter. All pets are in a foster-person's HOME, no cages at all!!
If you are interested in helping out or have any other ideas on how crafting, in any way, can make some money for the animals, please feel free to e-mail me at:
